According to AFRIK53, a French media house France 24 sent a mercenary journalist Ms Pauline Simonet in Burundi with the mission of starting a propaganda to destabilize the Burundian government. Here we have to remind you that this is a bigger plan of the Tutsi species to establish a Hima Empire that is supposed to extend from Ethiopia all the way to Angola. The Hima Kingdom of East and Central African Region is supposed to include the following ocuntries with a mission to expand later. These countries are Uganda where it was started by Yoweli Kaguta Museveni the President of Uganda, Rwanda under the Rwandan Patriotic Front (RPF) a Tutsi movement that overthrew a Hutu Republic with the help of Americans, DR Congo under Joseph Kanambe Kabila the cousin to James Kabarebe, the Rwandan Defense Minister an RPF Tutsi, Burundi under Pierre Buyoya who assassinated Melchior Ndadaye; the first Hutu democratically elected President of Burundi. You have also to remember that the Hima Empire has not been able to take over Tanzania, Kenya, Southern Sudan, Angola, and Congo Republic. Recently you witnessed political turmoil between Kagame and Jakaya Kikwete of Tanzania where Paul Kagame told the Tanzanian President that Kagame will kill him. Kagame also has extensively worked hard to win over the Kenyan leaders including Uhuru Kenyatta and William Ruto in order to exalt his influence in Kenyan politics in reparation of how some of the Rwanda Tutsis who have been living in Kenya since 1959 and disguise themselves as Kikuyu tribe people can take over the Kenyan politics. This is because Kenyan demography is so diverse and many Tutsis have infiltrated the Kenyan political system disguising themselves as Kikuyu, Maasai, or Meru people.
To achieve the wider Hima Empire in East and Central Africa, all Tutsis have teamed up together to work hard to propagate their idealism of genocide propaganda as you all watched it in horror unfolding during the Burundi crisis where both Kagame, International Media, Western countries had started accusing President Nkurunziza of preparing genocide against Tutsis. This is new. It is a well thought out plan of taking over the region and establish the Hima Empire. One of the prominent Western journalists charged with spreading the Hima Empire propaganda is the very active French-Rwandese journalist Ms. Pauline Sominet. This lady was once Miss France and she is born of a French dad and a Rwandan Tutsi mother. However, despite being westernized her ambition and mother's idealogy to see Tutsis dominating other tribes in Africa is unmatchable. In late 2008 she was humiliated on a French TV where she ridiculed herself defending Paul Kagame and RPF clique trying to exhonorate them of crimes against humanities they have committed against Hutus in Rwanda and DR Congo.
In 2011 Ms Pauline Simonet embarked on a new initiative to promote the Hima Empire propaganda in France, and most importantly to give voice to exteemist Tutsis who think that Hutus and other tribes in the region are not humans and dont deserve to lead. Ms Pauline Simonet actively went into the forest in DRC to highlight stories about goons hiding themselves in the forest in the name of rebels. Not suprisingly, they were all Tutsis who have caused havoc in Burundi, Rwanda, and DRC. Pauline Simonet went ahead and gave them a voice to show to the world how Burundi is descending into violence. She was war-mongering saying that attacks on villages and targeted assassinations are increasing. She went ahead and said that there is a new rebel group formed to challenge President Nkurunziza. This is was in line with the plans that Tutsis in the region have to establish Hima Empire as we have been witnessing what has been happening in Burundin recently. Pauline Simonet was in the loop of what is planed to happen away ahead because her brothers, euncles, aunts, and friends had already briefed her on what is going on.
Our reporters went to meet its leader in the mountains of South Kivu, in the DRC. This is the first time he has agreed to speak to journalists.
Thursday December 1st was the first day that our Reporters on the new rebellion and political tensions in Burundi was to be broadcast. But suddenly, FRANCE 24 was cut off in the country. I received many phone calls from Burundians frustrated at missing the programme. They have so few opportunities to see reports on their country in the international media.
I had been thinking about the subject for several months. Burundi is gradually sinking into a new war, but no one, or almost is talking about it. It must be said that Burundi, nestled in the heart of Africa’s Great Lakes, between Rwanda and the Democratic Republic of Congo, is of little interest to the international community. It is one of the continent’s smallest countries, it is not rich in natural resources, and it has a limited regional role. The tragic history of Burundi has not had the same media impact as the genocide and conflict in neighbouring Rwanda.
So when a new rebel group, the Fronatu Tabara, is formed and begins to publish online statements, I seize the chance. The conflict materialises - a good starting point for a report. But I want to approach and meet the rebels. Several weeks of preparation are necessary. The armed men are reticent, they fear falling into a trap.
A meeting across the border
Finally, we manage to establish contact. The rebels give us the green light. But it is only once we arrive in Bujumbura at the beginning of November that we find out the details of the meeting. It will in fact take place on the other side of Lake Tanganyika, in the east of the DRC. We will need to climb up to the highlands of South Kivu, as this is where the armed group has installed its rear base.
We are due to meet our "escorts" in Uvira, Bujumbura’s twin town on the Congolese side. But our departure is postponed several times. It is the height of the electoral period in DRC, and President Joseph Kabila is campaigning in the region. Controls by Congolese soldiers have increased.
Two days of walking
It is difficult to be inconspicuous, since FRANCE 24’s viewers will recognise me. This slows down our crossing of the Congolese border.
After several failed attempts, we finally reach the other side of the border with our guides, at the foot of the mountains. We are told the rebels are only thee hours’ walk away, and that we should arrive by nightfall. I reassure myself that I can manage the trek. In actual fact, it will take us two long days of walking to get to our meeting point.
We finally arrive. It is several hours after nightfall when, suddenly, around twenty armed men descend on the village. These are the rebels we are to meet.
